The Lady is Blue, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Stevens Alfred-Lady in Blue

Alfred Steven, Lady in Blue (1865)

 

The Lady is Blue, Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Distraught as I sit before the mirror,
For it confirms what is already known.
Many thing are not now as they once were,
Memories are now what I mostly own.

Time once spent attending gala events,
Is now consumed by funerals and wakes.
Each letter received makes me ev’r so tense,
This letter today adds to heartaches.

Gone are the days of heated love affairs,
Wonderful nights of wine and merry song.
There must be time for a few more fanfares,
The events of life are not overlong.

Tonight like last night will be spent at ease,
Reliving my favorite memories.

Husband, Father, Grandfather, Lover of all beautiful things. I love to read and write poetry. My favorite hangouts are libraries and museums and yet I love being outdoors. I am a dreamer of things that could be.
